We can prove that Jesus quotes Isaiah frequently, just as we can prove that many of His other quotes can be found in the "old" testament [a phrase manufactured by the church,and not by God or Jesus]. We know the following is from Isaiah, because Scripture explicitly states that it was, and we can find the precise part of Isaiah Jesus quoted, and compare that to what we believe Jesus said. From this, we can determine exactly what Jesus meant, rather than blindly accept what the church wants us sheeple to think He meant:
From Isaiah we know exactly what Jesus meant by "holy seed", "son of man", "man", "virgin":
I, even I, am he that comforteth you: who art thou, that thou shouldest be afraid of a man that shall die, and of the son of man which shall be made as grass;
Isa 56:2Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
Isa 6:1 In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.
Isa 6:2Above it stood the seraphims: each one had six wings with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.
Isa 6:3And one cried unto another, and said, Holy, holy, holy, is the LORD of hosts: the whole earth is full of his glory.
Isa 6:4And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried, and the house was filled with smoke.
Isa 6:5Then said I, Woe is me! for I am undone; because I am a man of unclean lips, and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips: for mine eyes have seen the King, the LORD of hosts.
Isa 6:6Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar:
Isa 6:7And he laid it upon my mouth, and said, Lo, this hath touched thy lips; and thine iniquity is taken away, and thy sin purged.
Isa 6:8Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me.
Isa 6:9And he said, Go, and tell this people, Hear ye indeed, but understand not; and see ye indeed, but perceive not.
Isa 6:10Make the heart of this people fat, and make their ears heavy, and shut their eyes; lest they see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and convert, and be healed.
Isa 6:11Then said I, Lord, how long? And he answered, Until the cities be wasted without inhabitant, and the houses without man, and the land be utterly desolate,
Isa 6:12And the LORD have removed men far away, and there be a great forsaking in the midst of the land.
Isa 6:13But yet in it shall be a tenth, and it shall return, and shall be eaten: as a teil tree, and as an oak, whose substance is in them, when they cast their leaves: so the holy seed shall be the substance thereof.
Isa 7:1And it came to pass in the days of Ahaz the son of Jotham, the son of Uzziah, king of Judah, that Rezin the king of Syria, and Pekah the son of Remaliah, king of Israel, went up toward Jerusalem to war against it, but could not prevail against it.
Isa 7:2And it was told the house of David, saying, Syria is confederate with Ephraim. And his heart was moved, and the heart of his people, as the trees of the wood are moved with the wind.
Isa 7:3Then said the LORD unto Isaiah, Go forth now to meet Ahaz, thou, and Shear-jashub thy son, at the end of the conduit of the upper pool in the highway of the fuller's field;
Isa 7:4And say unto him, Take heed, and be quiet; fear not, neither be fainthearted for the two tails of these smoking firebrands, for the fierce anger of Rezin with Syria, and of the son of Remaliah.
Isa 7:5Because Syria, Ephraim, and the son of Remaliah, have taken evil counsel against thee, saying,
Isa 7:6Let us go up against Judah, and vex it, and let us make a breach therein for us, and set a king in the midst of it, even the son of Tabeal:
Isa 7:7Thus saith the Lord GOD, It shall not stand, neither shall it come to pass.
Isa 7:8For the head of Syria is Damascus, and the head of Damascus is Rezin; and within threescore and five years shall Ephraim be broken, that it be not a people.
Isa 7:9And the head of Ephraim is Samaria, and the head of Samaria is Remaliah's son. If ye will not believe, surely ye shall not be established.
Isa 7:10Moreover the LORD spoke again unto Ahaz, saying,
Isa 7:11Ask thee a sign of the LORD thy God; ask it either in the depth, or in the height above.
Isa 7:12But Ahaz said, I will not ask, neither will I tempt the LORD.
Isa 7:13And he said, Hear ye now, O house of David; Is it a small thing for you to weary men, but will ye weary my God also?
Isa 7:14Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin [also see virgin] shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.
Isa 7:15Butter and honey shall he eat, that he may know to refuse the evil, and choose the good.
Isa 7:16For before the child shall know to refuse the evil, and choose the good, the land that thou abhorrest shall be forsaken of both her kings.
Isa 7:17The LORD shall bring upon thee, and upon thy people, and upon thy father's house, days that have not come, from the day that Ephraim departed from Judah; even the king of Assyria.
Isa 7:18And it shall come to pass in that day, that the LORD shall hiss for the fly that is in the uttermost part of the rivers of Egypt, and for the bee that is in the land of Assyria.
Isa 7:19And they shall come, and shall rest all of them in the desolate valleys, and in the holes of the rocks, and upon all thorns, and upon all bushes.
Isa 7:20In the same day shall the Lord shave with a razor that is hired, namely, by them beyond the river, by the king of Assyria, the head, and the hair of the feet: and it shall also consume the beard.
Isa 7:21And it shall come to pass in that day, that a man shall nourish a young cow, and two sheep;
Isa 7:22And it shall come to pass, for the abundance of milk that they shall give he shall eat butter: for butter and honey shall every one eat that is left in the land.
Isa 7:23And it shall come to pass in that day, that every place shall be, where there were a thousand vines at a thousand silverlings, it shall even be for briers and thorns.
Isa 7:24With arrows and with bows shall men come thither; because all the land shall become briers and thorns.
Isa 7:25 And on all hills that shall be digged with the mattock, there shall not come thither the fear of briers and thorns: but it shall be for the sending forth of oxen, and for the treading of lesser cattle.
Isaiah 56: Irony, or the REAL Word of God?
In the following verse, we have to question exactly where Isaiah would have gotten the authority to include "enosh" [Strong's #582, translated as "man"] and "Adam" [Strong's #120, also translated as "man"], and "nekar" [Strong's #5236, translated as "stranger"] as "his people" when "the LORD" had made it abundantly clear in prior verses that such people were NEVER to even be admitted into the congregation of the LORD:
The following clue that this is irony, which ironically is exactly what "churches" teach today, brings us closer to the truth that Isaiah would NOT have attempted to abolish God's Law:
Isn't this EXACTLY what churches claim today? That the ACTUAL heirs to God's EVERLASTING covenant are no longer heirs--BUT EVERYBODY ELSE IS???
ISN'T THIS EXACTLY THE ABOMINATION FOR WHICH GOD DESTROYED ISRAELITES BY THE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS?
The plot thickens:
Solomon had to build a SEPARATE TEMPLE just so that his Egyptian wife, the daughter of the pharaoh, couldn't enter the temple of the LORD--but now Isaiah COMMANDS that God accept ALL sacrifices from ALL people in HIS house? I don't think so:
The animals, too? We now let the animals of the field, and the animals of the forest--INTO GOD'S TEMPLE?!!
Well, no, this is NOT what Isaiah proposed. What Isaiah DID DO was to CONDEMN the Israelites, and "His watchmen", for being BLIND, IGNORANT, DUMB, DOGS THAT CANNOT BARK, LAZY, GREEDY, STUPID, DRUNKEN SHEPHERDS who wouldn't recognize God's Law if it slapped them on the side of the head:
In a very memorable way, using irony, Isaiah laid out all the blasphemous and abominable acts that Israelites must NOT participate in. Enosh, Adamites, and Nekar [other non-Israelites] are NEVER to be permitted into the congregation of the LORD, and those who permit them CANNOT claim to be "His Watchmen".
